Prayer for Our Grandchildren

And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature.” (Luke 8:14).

Dearest Lord Jesus,
We worry about the amount of time our grandchildren spend watching television, playing video games, texting their friends and amusing themselves with smart gadgets and devices. We worry that excessive screen-time consumes their time, interferes with their homework, inhibits their ability to develop necessary social skills and deadens their awareness of your Presence.
Protect our grandchildren from becoming sensory junkies, who are addicted to instant gratification provided by the world of technology. Give them the courage, and the ability, to unplug in exchange for spending uninterrupted, quality-time not only with their family and friends but with You.
We pray this in Your Name, Amen.
